laundry, anniversary, hiking

Well it has been a little while since I've posted so here is what we've been up to. Jacob is now 9 months old. He loves "helping" with the laundry, and "unloading" the dish washer. He is crawling and standing just about everywhere. Ivan and I celebrated our 2nd wedding anniversary. We went to the Living Planet Aquarium in Sandy, we stayed at the Little America hotel, where we swam and went running in the gym, we played tennis, we did sealings in the Salt Lake temple (the highlight of the day) and we went to Red Lobster for dinner. It was a memorable anniversary. This last weekend we went hiking. It was Jacob's first time. Ivan carried him in the infant carrier 3/4 the way but then Jacob wanted out. We hiked the Rattlesnake Gulch trail up Millcreek canyon. It was a beautiful day.

thats all for now....have a good one

p.s. Jacob loves dogs

Jacob loves dogs, no matter where we are if there is a dog around that's where all of his attention goes. When we were up at my parents for Halloween he was facinated with Jimmy. He followed him around everywhere. Jacob is crawling all over the place and his favorite thing to do was follow Jimmy. He thought it was pretty cool that he could pull Jimmy's tail and make him move. Jimmy loved to kiss Jacob in the ear. Here is my favoirte picture with Jacob and Jimmy.

Well sorry it has taken me a few weeks to post. Life has been busy. Last week I received Salt Lake County Outstanding employee of the year. I received a cash award, 2 tickets to ride the Heber Creeper, and lunch with Salt Lake county mayor Peter Carroon. Jacob and Ivan also came to the lunch which was at Baxters American at the Gateway. I was just as surprised as anyone to receive the award. My boss gave a little speech about why she nominated me at the luncheon. It was a great day.
We went up to my parents house for Halloween. There was a trunk or treat at church. I was an Incan girl, and Jacob was a bumble bee. Ivan didn’t dress up this year. Latter we went to my parents house and Dave and Ashley came over for dinner it was great to see them. Jacob is growing and learning in leaps and bounds.
Today Jacob saw snow for the first time. He was intrigued by the white stuff all over the trees, and grass. I'll be adding some pictures later because I don't have the camera with me right now. Have a great one!
Jessica, Ivan, and Jacob
